The Cadets family is saddened with the loss of William Ridings of Cypress Hills, Texas. Bill, 65, passed away on Saturday, Feb. 19. He was a snare drummer with Garfield Cadets from 1959-1963.

A website has been posted by Bill’s son, Tre, who will announce details about a celebration of Bill’s life in the coming weeks.

My father fought the good fight but has lost his battle with cancer on Saturday, Feb. 19, 2011 at the age of 65. Vazquez & Montgomery Funeral Home will be taking good care of Bill and will be carrying out his final wishes.

Our family asks that in lieu of sending flowers; please donate to his favorite organization, The Cadets Drum & Bugle Corps.  In the space for "Street 2" please type "In memory of member Bill Ridings."

There will not be a traditional service or funeral. Instead, at his request, we will be hosting a celebration of his life in the near future.  We will be posting the date and location here on his memorial page along with much more information.

Please sign our guestbook here.

We can't thank you enough for everyone's kind words and support. Check back soon for much more information, photos and videos.
